Here is my take using the What the Doodle Ornament mini set and coordinating dies. The ornament were colored in with Gelatos. I sponged the background with distress ink and added gold gel pen to areas of the ornaments.
 
Have a fabulous day and enjoy the hop!

Good morning! 
 
Today I created a photo card of my grandson taken at Christmas 2014. It's one of my favorite pics of him when he was a baby. He will be three this coming May and he hasn't changed that much since this pic was taken. I have linked this card up for this week's Papertrey Ink MIM Challenge - Holiday Photo Cards.
 
Here are the supplies I used:
 
 
I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!


Happy Holidays


Good morning all!
 
My New Years resolution this year is to spend less on craft supplies. I have been slowy reorganizing my craft room and have noticed I have quite a few unopened stamp sets from varies companies. Some sets have only been used once. My card today features the set Winter Wonderland by WPlus9 which I inked up once since the set came out three years ago.
 
The background was lightly sponged with distress inks. The scalloped card base and frame is by Papertrey Ink and the birch tree is by MFT.
 
Have a great day!


 Three die cuts were glued together to make a chipboard.

Create-along-with-us-heading
 Good morning all!
 
 This month for PTI's  Create Along With Us Challenge I was inspired by Maile's card pictured below. I love her clean and simple style and all that white space.
 
 
 
Here is the card I created featuring an older set by Maile called Quilled Elegance and an image from Ombre Builders. I did change it up a bit and added a die cut frame from the scalloped A2 vertical die. I omitted the ribbon since I will be giving it to my husband and he isn't a ribbon kind of guy.
 
It's hard to tell from the picture but I filled in the image with gold Uni Ball Signo pen and Wink of Stella to give it a bit of sparkle and shine.
 
Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!
 
Hugs, Rema

Let It Snow

Good evening all! I'm so glad you dropped by.
 
I have a fun Christmas card to share with you all featuring images and coordinating dies from the Home for the Holidays Stamp TV kit by Gina K. Designs. I collect snowmen and I am simply in love with this jolly little fella. The sentiment is from Compliments of the Season also by Gina K.
 
I created the background with Yupo paper and alcohol inks .I let it sit a bit before adding embossing paste to a stencil by Simon Says called Falling Snow. The die cut stitched hills are by MFT.

Happy stamping!
